Terrific coffee/ tea room and delicatessen in the centre of Kirriemuir. Really quirky, very small so getting a seat can often be a challenge, but it's worth the wait. The food is of such a high standard, and a bit different, the teas and coffee...More

Compact cafe serving excellent coffee and home baking. Lunch menu looked interesting but we did not have time to stay. Glorious hand made chocolate. A lovely Easter treat.

This is what small, private coffee shops are meant to be. Some would say "artisan", I would say brilliant. Lovely coffee, great selection of eats (brownies are awesome), almost always something different to try. J and the girls are always welcoming. Worth leaving the nearby...More

A friendly, welcoming space, run by charming and committed people for whom locally-sourced is not an empty slogan. The coffee is delicious, likewise every morsel of food I could stuff in my happy mouth! The chocolate bars are divine. Do not miss this treat.
